[Bug 1082001] Re: Grid/Expo: Corner-resized Grid windows confuse Expo and follow the user from workspace to workspace
Updated description because bug title and description are not complete:
Bottom/Top half grid windows are also affected.
** Description changed:
1. Open a window
2. Hit "Ctrl+Alt+Numpad3" to resize it via Grid (for example Firefox) into a corner.
- Alternatively you can drag the window to a corner to grid-resize it.
+ Alternatively you can drag the window to a corner to grid-resize it.
3. Open any other window (for example a terminal)
4. Trigger Expo (via Launcher's Workspace Switcher icon or by hitting "Super+S" for example)
5. Now drag the "non-gridded" second window (terminal in our case here) to another workspace/viewport
What you would expect to happen:
The terminal window should now be on the new viewport. The other window
should not change position.
What actually happens:
No matter on which workspace the terminal window is dragged to, the *gridded* window follows.
Wait, it gets even better:
If you try to switch the workspace without dragging a window, the *gridded* window will follow you, whereever you go.
If you resize multiple windows via Grid all will follow you from workspace to workspace.
Note 1: I have tested this in a virtual machine with a vanilla default
up-to-date installation of Raring also, to make sure non-default
settings are not causing this problem.
Note 2: This bug makes using Grid in combination with Expo (which are
both enabled by default on Ubuntu) completely unusable and should have
- Note 3: Just corner-gridded windows seem to be affected.
+ When a window gets positioned in a corner or the top/bottom half and you switch workspace using ẃorkspace switcher the window gets positioned on every workspace you switch to on exactly the same position.
+ Same is true for dragging one window on the same workspace as the grid positioned window (corners or top/bottom half) to another workspace: the grid placed window follows to the workspace the other window is dragged to.
+ This behavior is not true for windows that have grid positions when launched!
+ The following video demonstrates the bug:
